Cogito Ergo Sum
Prologue of Sorts
"But I have convinced myself that there is absolutely nothing in the world, no sky, no earth, no minds, no bodies. Does it now follow that I too do not exist? No. If I convinced myself of something (or thought anything at all) then I certainly existed. But there is a deceiver of supreme power and cunning who is deliberately and constantly deceiving me. In that case I too undoubtedly exist, if he is deceiving me; and let him deceive me as much as he can, he will never bring it about that I am nothing so long as I think that I am something. So, after considering everything very thoroughly, I must finally conclude that the proposition, I am, I exist, is necessarily true whenever it is put forward by me or conceived in my mind." - René Descartes

Pushing back your hair
Wondering what youre dreaming of

By the soft comforts I mutter.
I lay back on my pillow
And whisper my Good night.
I love you more than life itself
Sweet dreams, my love. Sleep tight.
Regret-lessNow, in the past Ive had regretsRegret-less6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
-- Ive caused a lot of pain
Ive made folks cry
Ive broken hearts
and all for my own gain.
But you should know
theres just some things
that I would never change.
Some things just make you who you are,
even if youre strange.
Ive got fond memories
of everything we do.
Life wouldnt be the same
if I wasnt with you.
And though sometimes, its tough
I consider Life my friend.
I dont regret my life so far,
